Genomic epidemiology and malaria surveillance

Project Details

The potential of the Plasmodium genomics to improve the surveillance and control of malaria in endemic countries is a key focus of our research. This requires an interdisciplinary approach combining field, laboratory and computational approaches. Genomic epidemiology is underpinned by the disciplines of evolutionary genetics, ecology, microbiology, parasitology, immunology, genomics and epidemiology to solve the pressing public health problems of our time. From genomic data we have created genotyping methods to study variation in neutral markers, drug resistance markers, and antigen encoding loci to answer questions about malaria transmission across the globe.
